Design and Technology
Our curriculum vision is reflected in Design and Technology through the key concepts of:
Designing - Making - Evaluating
Designing is the planning process for the construction of an object or system. This links with Community in that it requires the sharing and contributing of ideas.
Making is the process of producing something. This links with Environment in the consideration of the potential use of the product and Growth in terms of the realisation of potential.
Evaluating is part of the iterative design process in which an appraisal is give of the effectiveness, usefulness and precision of the object. This links with Spirituality in that it requires reflection and deep thought.
